directions

Step 1

In a food processor or blender, puree all ingredients until the sauce is coarse, yet pourable.

Step 2

Cut pork shoulder into two pieces. Using a butcher knife, make cuts of 1-inch apart and 1/8 to 1/4-inch deep. This will help the marinade soak into the roast. Place in a shallow pan. In a bowl, combine salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, ground allspice, soy sauce and jerk sauce.. Rub sauce over pork. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Step 3

Preheat barbecue to 300 degrees.

Step 4

Slow cook pork until meat is brown and tender, about 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until meat thermometer inserted into meat reaches 160 degrees. To serve, cut pork into 1-inch cubes. Serves 8 to 10
